I see. 

Too optimistic, i mean Raul Albiol, Radu, Juan Jesus, Bruno Peres - Lucas Leiva!? 90?

Your correct with the Napoli ones, but its too soon. Absolutely Hysaj will rise, Allan, Jorginho, Callejon

:lol:

D'oh. Another person who doesn't know the meaning of a question mark it seems.

You should see a doctor mate, it's amazing what they can do for you these days  

Some of the stuff you see on here is honestly absurd, this second time i've now seen you have a go at someone because of ratings lol, if people come on here and provide threads for the benefit of hund

With regards to @hoochy koochy's post, I agree that this has become a catch-all thread for deals, buy/sell/keep and new players etc. I can understand why people would post questions that are unrelated

Dont put question marks :) its confusing...and u are not giving any new info ;) doubts everybody has them...hugs

Nah. At first that might have been the case, but not when I specifically explained in bold letters and large font what the question marks meant. :) It is there on all of those big 5 predictions in black and white.

And it gives more info that simply predicting a rise that only has a 25% chance of happening. For example, if I had simply predicted that Lemar would rise with no question marks then god knows how much stick I would have got. :lol:

No I understood it - i put '?' as i clearly see you put '?' but you even considered these players getting a rise to 90

Basically your not sticking your neck out to make a prediction then. You might as well put up a question mark on everyone then

Your saying - i predict this but it may or may not happen but i'll absolve myself from any backlash for getting it wrong by putting a disclaimer that ? means 25% chance.... have i got that right?

Trouble is no one can seem to take some constructive criticism here

Sigh. 

You asked me which players that I was referring to when I said that SM had missed some obvious risers and falls. I told you to check my thread. If you saw a ? by the player then you clearly must have known that it was not those players that I was referring to as being "obvious". So for you to specifically list them was bizarre really wasn't it. 

I put a question mark against them because I know how unpredictable SM can be. I got stick for even suggesting that SM might give Lemar a rise with people suggesting it was an insane idea. We all know what happened there.

"Absolve myself from any backlash"? :lol: It is hardly daring for me to make predictions about a football game. I am not exactly coming out as a Trump supporter here. If I were so worried about what people thought, I would hardly post a thousand predictions in that thread.

The predictions are there primarily to help myself as I find it easy to check on players from different countries and different positions. If it helps other people and they can cross-compare with Rahul's predictions then all the better. The ??? help me to remember who is a doubtful riser and may well help other people if they compare with Rahul's ideas. You obviously made it clear that you had an issue with that thread from the beginning though when you accused it of, "Destroying your gameworlds". ;)

Anyway, it's not complicated. I try to bring something positive to this board and the game. You make some good points, but I can't help feel that for whatever reason you are massively defensive of SM and seem almost affronted when they are criticized.

I knock SM, but I have in the past contacted them when they have missed obvious risers and they have (to their credit) sometimes rectified their mistakes a few days later. That seems to be the most constructive approach to me, but you take your road and I will take mine. :)

Unai Nuñez 80 > 85 (But I think he won't be on the lineup at the end of the season when Yerai is ok)

He has been 10x the player Yeray ever was, and not even a 120% fit Yeray is going to bench him. He has been our best defebder this season, and like another forumer pointed out "he has outperformed Laporte this season."

...this guy gets it.

NUNEZ will likely match ALVAREZ's 87 rating before ALVAREZ has even kicked a ball competitively. ombarcagunners clearly hasn't been following Bilbao and NUNEZ's performances closely enough.

You do your fair share of good work, i did this kind of thing several years ago, but it gets tedious when you get the constant complaining and it does become a witch hunt against the game. I'll say no more now, but i'll always debate a indifference people have when i can see the method behind the madness, at least it creates discussion on the forum. Its a damn shame its so dead now, it used to be thriving 4/5 years ago.

I have my issues with SM, ratings is not a massive deal for me as I'm a long term manager, not a  'need and want it now' kinda person; players will get the rating they earn in time. My issues lie within the popular public gameworlds, and gold GWs,, with multi accounts, massive squads, financial mismanagement and the daily hoovering up of players.  Now theres some other subjects, imagine the upset i'll cause when you hear my views on those haha

As the Marca reports

At. Bilbao's goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga switches to Real Madrid by option for 20 Million €

Blimey. i dont think they have ever sold a player within La Liga for a fee in at least 15 years, i can only think of Ander Herrera, Asier Del Horno to Chelsea and Javi Martinez, they all went abroad

*Aduriz. 2008 to Mallorca.
